Asparagus officinalis
ASPARAGUS – CONNOVER’S COLOSSAL  is a perennial plant of Mediterranean origin from 1873, that grows to 150cm high with rich green stems and purple tops.   It takes three years to produce edible spears from seed, but it lasts 20 years once established. When transplanting you chose the thicker male stems which are stronger. The Female plants produce poisonous red berries. It yields 10 spears over 8 weeks in a year and grows best in places with cold winters.

Plant in early Spring after the last frost in light well drained friable mulched soil. Cut old fronds back in winter when it dies off and transplant root crowns. Soil should be well manured and fertilised. Do not plant in an old bed previously used for asparagus to prevent disease. Space 20 to 30 cm apart, 1 to 2 cm deep in a sunny area or partial shade. Add lime if soil is too acidic. If soil is too hard, cultivate several times or plant in raised garden beds and keep weed free. Eat raw or cooked

More About Us

ABSeeds is an Australian owned business trading under the umbrella of Direct Compost Solutions which is owned and managed by Victoria Brun.

We as a company endeavor to provide to the public, Organic, Old Fashioned, Heritage, and Open-pollinated seeds that have not been genetically modified.

We purchased the business in November 2018 and renamed it to ABSeeds (All ‘Bout Seeds) to make the title shorter and represent what we hope to achieve with this business in the years ahead.

Seeds that we can’t grow ourselves we will acquire from people who grow for us, or we may purchase seeds from reputable heritage seed companies.
